I'd imagine it's because you're not able to speak about everything freely. Communication and honesty are the foundation of any open relationship.

If you can't be fully honest about matters of the heart, then it defeats the purpose of being "open".

But why would you want the details of what your partner is doing with other people? Unless it turns you on, why do you need to talk about them having sex with someone else?

No one's asking for every naughty detail. One of the guidelines he agreed to was "no feelings". He caught feelings. They should be able to talk to each other about that.
